CHAIN BRAKE

_
-",WARNINg:
WE DO NOT REP-
RESENT
AND YOU SHOULD
NOT AS-
SUME THAT THE CHAIN
BRAKE
WILL
PROTECT
YOU
IN THE EVENT
OF A
KICKBACK.
Kickback is a lightningfast
ac-
tion which throws the bar and rotating chain
back and up toward the operator. Kickback
can be caused by allowing contact of the bar
tip in the danger zone with any hard object.
Kickbackcan
also be caused by pinchingthe
saw chain alongthetop
ofthe guidebar.
This
action may push the guide bar rapidly back
toward the operator.
Either of these events
may cause you to lose control of the saw
which could result in serious injury or even
death. DO NOT RELY UPON ANY OF THE
DEVICES BUILT INTO YOUR SAW. YOU
SHOULD USE THE SAW PROPERLY AND
CAREFULLY
TO AVOID KICKBACK.
Re-
duced-kickback
guide bars and low-kick-
back saw chains reduce the chance and
magnitude
of kickback
and are recom-
mended. Your saw has a low kickback chain
and bar as original equipment.
If the brake
band is worn too thin it may break when the
chain brake is triggered.With
a broken brake
band, the chain brake will not stop the chain.
The chain brake should be replaced by an
authorized service dealer if any part is worn
to less than 1/32" thick. Repairs on a chain
brake should be made by an authorized ser-
vice dealer.
Take your unit to the place of
purchase
if purchased
from a Husqvarna
Servicing Dealer, or to the nearest Autho-
rized Husqvarna
Service Dealer.
• This saw is equipped with a chain brake.
The brake is designed to stop the chain if
kickback occurs.
• The

chain
brake
is
activated if the front hand guard is pushed
forward,
either
manually
(by hand) or
automatically
(by sudden movement).
• If the brake
is already
activated,
it is
disengagedby
pullingthe front hand guard
back toward the front handle as far as
possible.
• When cutting with the saw, the chain brake
must be disengaged.

CAUTION:
The chain
